Events managed by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce, including the A Taste of Edmonds, An Edmonds Kind of 4th, Edmonds Classic Car Show, Edmonds Trick-or-Treat, Edmonds Tree Lighting Ceremony and Clam Chowder Cook-Off will also be represented. The Edmonds Historical Museum will feature volunteer opportunities for the Edmonds Spring Garden Market; Summer Farmers Market; Heritage Days Banquet and Auction; Halloween Haunted Museum; Scarecrow Festival and Museum Plaza improvements.
“We live in a very special place, and people who freely give of themselves are a big part of what makes it that way,” said Sandra Butterfield, Museum Docent Coordinator and event organizer. “This is the perfect opportunity to meet directly with local organizations who need your time and talents.”
